or for local links:
The Paste Link Dialog

The Paste Link dialog lets you interactively create a link to paste into your content. Here's what the dialog looks like:
For the Link you can either type in or paste a URL or use the file selection button pick a local file resource to link. Any local file resources will be linked as relative if possible.
Automatic URLs from Clipboard
If you have a URL on the clipboard when the dialog is first opened, the URL is automatically placed into the Link field.
If you navigate off the form and copy a URL to your clipboard then return to the form, if the Link field is still empty it is then automatically filled from the Clipboard URL.
